Hi, I’m Ava.

You might be curious about why I’m a bookbear. Well, it’s because I’m a bear who reads a lot of books. Duh.

You might know me on Twitter as @noampomsky. I’ve lived in San Francisco for 4 years on and off, and I write about what it’s like to be a young woman in STEM who’s also into the, uh, liberal arts, interesting and absurd pieces of tech culture, and funny anecdotes about my own life.

I’m new to Substack and still ~iterating~ but currently you can expect a short essay once or twice a week about whatever’s on my mind. I’m also going to start doing a What I’ve Been Reading feature once a week, to unpack all the binge-reading I’ve been doing during quarantine. Feel free to let me know what you’re interested in reading :)

I’ll probably make an attempt at monetizing this in the future, but for now it’s just a place for me to share my thoughts with you. So please subscribe and let me know what you think!
